Need expert insights before publishing your niche-specific content? Our Subject Matter Expert Review enhances your written content with relevant knowledge, increases your audience’s trust, and gets you on Google’s nice list — all while giving you peace of mind.
You don’t need to be a subject matter expert to know that an SME has a ton of knowledge. Expertly speaking, they’ve spent years gaining firsthand experience in their respective fields to share their wisdom for the good of audiences and businesses alike.
SMEs have specialized knowledge from career paths as doctors, teachers, accountants, lawyers, technicians, and even artists. Their professional experience can range from one industry to multiple and they can be practicing in their field or retired. They may have general knowledge about a topic or have a deep understanding of a particular process.
Subject matter experts have a passion for sharing accurate knowledge with the world. If you want to improve your brand authority and showcase that you create helpful content, you’ll want to partner with an SME.
At Compose.ly, our subject matter experts are well-versed professionals who thoroughly review and create content to establish brands as dependable thought leaders. Many of our SMEs are talented writers as well.
They masterfully weave in their expertise while strengthening a brand’s unique insights and perspectives. Their proficient communication skills allow them to share feedback and specialized knowledge in ways that your teams and customers can easily comprehend and apply to content.

Why should you hire subject matter experts? SMEs are a valuable resource during the content creation process because they accurately translate complex topics into digestible messaging, and they boost everyone’s authority along the way.
When an individual with extensive knowledge takes the reins, any semblance of doubt (and cortisol levels) are removed from your content — making your business a more credible, trustworthy, and educational resource for your customers and prospects.
You can’t claim to be an expert without having credentials, and SMEs have the advanced certifications needed to create regulated content efficiently. They spend anywhere from five to twenty years working, researching, studying, and writing about trends in their fields, which allows them to add authoritative bylines to any content they create. Subject matter experts also know how to incorporate SEO best practices into their research, which boosts E-E-A-T scores without oversaturating content with keywords.
When it comes to creating content that could directly impact a person’s health, finances, and overall well being, would you really want to rely on AI tools over human resources? Only subject matter experts can determine whether a content piece is factually accurate with correct terminology, up-to-date techniques, and reliable statistics. Partnering with SMEs during your AI content creation process provides you with the best of both worlds — speed and reassurance.
Google's helpful content update favors firsthand expertise, rewarding content that showcases contributions from subject matter experts with years of specialized experience and established trust. Collaborating with an SME boosts credibility, reliability, and visibility, signaling to Google that your content aims to actually help people — not just rank well in search engines. SMEs enhance authority in your messaging, which is crucial if you want to strengthen your brand loyalty and recall.
